Mucho respect to the legendary Tommy Vance. As stated very influential over here in the UK. He & Tony Wilson gave us one of the very few opportunities to regularly hear Rock & Metal on the radio back in the day.

I didn't realise quite how long before I started listening the Friday Rock Show had been running - Broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 10pm to midnight on Friday nights from 17 November 1978 to 2 April 1993

I'm not surprised he used the name Tommy Vance, born as Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston. He had a very interesting life it would seem, thankfully he was not involved with type particularly unforgivable scandal some of his fellow DJs at Radio 1 have been.

A Great article from the Guardian website: Cult heroes: Tommy Vance was British radio's unsung heavy metal guru
